My fading in and out of blogposts, the static, the vanishing of all shared data, all of it is part of ‘the art installation’ through time that this blog is.
A news snippet:
Little music for the ride:
Vitalic – Voyager, such a great album:
Most countries don’t bother, unless it is decided that an accident will be admitted to, and then, and only then, additional testing is done. Of the regular testers, 21 out of 23 EURDEP monitoring sites detected Cesium-137 this past month, with a massive spike recorded in southern Czech Republic (see previous posts).
We now know that this has been going on for some time, with recent peaking periods centered over April 29th, May 27th and June 3rd, among other less widespread ones. Then, after very widespread intensifying ‘fallout patterns’, deafening data silence since June 10th.
Aside from surreal concentrations of Cesium-137, there were also present in this fallout cloud of recent: I-131 (recent fission -> so, not forest fires related), Co-60, Na-22, Be-7 (all three neutron activation products), and Ac-225 & Ac-227.
- Kajaani, Finland: Ac-225 & Ac-227:
- Kajaani, Finland: Cs-137 & Na-22:
- Kotka, Finland: Co-60 & Cs-134:
SIX detections of Cobalt-60 since mid-April. Unprecedented in EURDEP history.
- Imatra, Finland: Cs-137 & Na-22:
- Kuopio, Finland: Cs-137 & I-131
The mixture (with mostly radioCesium, only traces of Iodine-131, and the occasional weird traces of Ac-225, Ac-227, Th-231, Nb-95 and especially the continued Cobalt-60 detections, as well the extremely widespread fallout signatures striking monitors near-simultaneously over vast distances… has me wondering if it’s still coming from Fukushima. Or if other serious meltdown accidents are far more common than admitted to. The media silence in this matter remains telling in and of itself as well.
Not sure what else to add to this…
